Peter Hitchens, bror av Christopher, beskriver den overflatiske humanismen som har grepet vestlig elite. De kaster seg ut i en menneskebølge og lar seg rive med av sine egne følelser. Det kan ikke fortsette, men likevel fortsetter det.DailyMail

Hitchens minner om at godhet ikke er så enkelt:

As William Blake rightly said: ‘He who would do good to another must do it in minute particulars. General good is the plea of the scoundrel, hypocrite and flatterer.’

Hitchens har lest Michel Houellebecqs Underkastelse, som utkom på engelsk sist uke, og han synes det han ser rundt seg minner om romanen. Det skjer fort og virker nærmest ustoppelig. Eliten virker å ha det travelt med å passere point of no return.

 

It’s amazing how likely and simple the author makes this Islamic revolution sound.

Can we stop this transformation of all we have and are? I doubt it. To do so would involve the grim-faced determination of Australia, making it plain in every way that our doors are open only to limited numbers of people, chosen by us, enduring the righteous scorn of the supposedly enlightened.

As we lack the survival instinct and the determination necessary, and as so many of our most influential people are set on committing a sentimental national suicide, I suspect we won’t.

To those who condemn reasonable calls for national self-defence as bigotry, hatred and intolerance (which they are not), I make only this request: just don’t pretend you’re doing a good and generous thing, when you’re really cowardly and weak.
